Lebanon in Crisis
We will never forget that day in August.
A massive explosion tore through Beirut’s waterfront — what the mayor called “a national catastrophe” that left some 300,000 people homeless, thousands more injured. More than 200 people were killed.
The aftershocks of this disaster — physical, economic, psychological — go on. It will take years for Lebanon to recover.
Will you join us in bringing the love of Christ to survivors of one of the worst disasters Lebanon has known?
Your generous support can help this battered country rebuild, and help our brothers and sisters start anew. You can help Lebanon, a witness to faith and fraternity, be a witness to perseverance and hope.
With your generous help, our partners in the region will continue to distribute food, repair damaged homes, rehabilitate hospitals and clinics and bring to this wounded nation some reassurance and hope.
“Lebanon is more than a country,” Pope Francis said. “Lebanon is a message of liberty, an example of pluralism for the Middle East and the rest of the world. We cannot allow this patrimony to be lost.”
